Jeff Goldblum has released the first new single taken form his upcoming new album, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This, and it features a wonderful collaboration with Sharon Van Etten.
The new record, which will see Goldblum backed again by his longtime band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, features guests such as Fiona Apple, Sharon Van Etten, Anna Calvi, and more.
Recorded at Henson Recording Studios in Hollywood, Los Angeles, I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This will be released via Decca Records on November 1st and, for Goldblum, life as a musician has realised his lifelong ambition: “Doing acting or certainly music was kind of just a wild-hearted, romantic adventure for me where I was trying to express myself more than impress myself upon anybody,” Goldblum said in an interview with Rolling Stone.
“Now it’s gotten more that way. If you love something, it doesn’t really matter what people think as much because you’re not really relying on that, but I’m gratified to see when people experience the band or come up to me after [the show]. It’s very happy-making for me. They get a kick out of it and I like that,” he added.
The first taste of his new music has arrived in the shape of ‘Let’s Face the Music and Dance’, a song originally written in 1936 by Irving Berlin for the film Follow the Flee. Covered by countless artists over the years, most famously the great Nat ‘King’ Cole, Goldblum and Etten have added their own special twist.
